Best Prices Guaranteed.
We price check all the major suppliers in the UK to ensure that you get the very best prices all the time. Don't be fooled by other websites offering wholesale sweets - We are the largest supplier offering the widest range of wholesale sweets and bulk confectionery.
You can pay for your UK Sweets order using a debit or credit card with no surcharges. We accecpt all majoy debit & credit cards. Please note: we no longer accept cheques, but now accept payments via PAYPAL!
If you are paying by debit card or credit card we operate a deferred payment system. When you place your order the full amount is held by us until your order is picked. We would then send your order and we only charge you for what we actually send. If you decide to add to your order or we have an item out of stock the money that we will take is for the amount that we send you. This eliminates the need for credit notes.
We do not take the full amount for the order until the order is packed and ready to be shipped.
